I love water. I love being near lakes, rivers, streams and oceans. I love water's changing faces. I love the calm and comforting sound of the gentle lapping at the shore's edge. I love the roar of the ocean waves. I love the rush of water in a river of rapids. I love the trickle over stones and branches in streams.

Water seems to me, a great echo of our own emotions. Sometimes water reveals to me the condition of my heart when I see what I captured on a particular day or during a particular season of life. Sometimes it shows me what I needed.

Here are a couple of shots I took during a chaotic and painful time in my family's life.

  1. "A great echo of our own emotions." I don't think I've ever heard it expressed that way, but it seems so true. Water can embody the whole spectrum of our feelings. Science tells us that life originated in the water. Baptism uses water to declare that our very life belongs to the Creator.

    I'm glad you've found solace at lakes, rivers, and oceans.
